Dear friends, I present my new development - a free graphic editor “Knob Studio”, intended primarily for developing from scratch the design of control elements - knobs, potentiometers, faders, switches, indicators, measuring instruments, etc., as a result not only a static design, but also an animated image that can be used not only as a virtual control, as well as get a full-fledged video demonstrating the operation of the device (AVI, GIF and animated PNG formats).
This program is an analogue of the famous Knob Man from g200kg, however, it is devoid of many of the disadvantages inherent in the latter, such as the need for a Java virtual machine, the impossibility of entering fractional numbers in Russian-speaking Windows and slow operation. In addition, Knob Studio has more functionality, such as “Stroke” and “Blur” effects, smoother animation curves, an improved vector shape editor, and much more.
Knob Studio has the ability to import files from Knob Man (* .knob) for further work and rendering the result. In addition, the distribution includes 100 examples (in the “Samples” folder), which you can modify and use at your discretion.
The program was tested on the Windows 10 operating system and the distribution contains two versions of the executable file:
• KnobStudio.exe - for 32 bit Windows
• KnobStudio64.exe - for 64 bit Windows
Installation - unpack the contents of the “KnobStudio1.0.zip” archive into any folder on your computer.
Additionally, it is possible to change the theme of the program to your taste - there are 34 themes in the distribution kit.
